of people look at harry read and know that he is from a pro gun state. he's in nevada. he's a gun owner himself. but it's not necessarily about his politics or personal advocacy for guns. it the political reality that never mind the republicans, democrats, a lot of democrats who are in vulnerable, political situations right now may not want to do anything until, unless they think it can actually get to the president for a signature. >> dana bash at the capitol, thanks so much for that. >>> a spokesman for the national rifle association tells cnn there's been an unprecedented spike in membership. about 250,000 new members have signed up. for more on the challenge president obama faces on pushing comprehensive gun reforms through the congress, i'm joined by chief political analyst gloria borger. when you look at this in a nutshell, the question arises early what is better to sort of put a comprehensive wish list out there or to just put out the things you think you can get through first. which is a better choice? >> they are put out there what one white house adviser described to me as a

actually think the president was remarkably tempered in nevada, and less partisan than usual. so i'm modestly encouraged. i don't personally believe, and i've said it over and again, that a comprehensive bill can pass. i think that it's too hard. i think that you could pass seven or eight bills that together form a comprehensive reform. my advice to the house republicans would be, start passing bills. you don't have to hang on -- >> jeb bush says that's impractical and he wrote that article last week in the "wall street journal." he says, go for the comprehensive, don't do it peace mie meal. >> look -- well, i have great respect for jeb bush, but i believe that in this city, what you end up with is 11:00 at night, in the white house, six people in secret, writing a bill they don't know anything about, dumping stuff in the bill at the last minute. it is the worst possible form of legislation. they ought to hold hearings -- first of all, let's hold hearings. let's get out in the open. >> they will be holding hearings, and they'll be introduced -- quickly, are you with marco rubio or
shooting range in nevada here. we're going to look at an m-16. this is a real m-16. carlos, if you would just set that up for us, i'm going to put some eye protection and ear protection on while he does that. thank you, sir. so if you look at this m-16, wolf, right now it's in the safe position. when you move it to the number one position, that's the semiautomatic position. and that means as i pull the trigger, each time i pull that trigger, a round goes off. when i turn it to the number three position here, that's fully automatic. when i pull the trigger, the gun doesn't stop until i stop pulling that trigger. that's the big difference. one thing of note here, it is an m-16 but this weapon would be, except for that feature of the fully automatic, this weapon would be legal under current law and how the president would then decide which weapons would not be legal under -- what it's all going to come down to. this is a 30-round magazine. this would be presumably illegal. i want to bring in mike heck. thank you, carlos, very much. i want to bring in mike heck who is the manager here at the
